Fast-but-patient Willie Parker

“I think Willie (Parker) has shown that he has the ability to become a starter,” Steelers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt said. “If he continues to make the plays he’s been making, he certainly merits some consideration for playing time. He has two very good players in Jerome (Bettis) and Duce (Staley) that are proven guys. Even though Willie has done well in the preseason, he hasn’t proven himself in the regular season, and that’s just going to be a matter of time. But certainly with the excitement that he brings you give him consideration.” (Steel City Sports)
